It seems to be agreed by men wise in chronology that an error of five years was made by the learned scholars who established the Christian era. This purpose of those scholars was to make it coincident with the birth of Christ, but in fact Christ was five years old at the time from which the era runs to which he gave the narne. It follows than -with today the twentieth century of the Christian era in reality begins. Instead of being January 1,1896, today would, but for this mistake, be January 1,1901. SENSIBLE RESOLUTIONS. The Grand Army of the Republic posts in Iowa have taken a decided stand against placing medallion portraits upon the Iowa Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument, and it it clearly evident that there is going to be a long fight on that matter. A certain set of resolutions which were first passed by the Redfiekl post of "Perry, has since been adopted by a number of posts in the state. The resolutions are as follows: Whereas, The state of Iowa has undertaken a most praiseworthy and patriotic work of erecting a monument to bhe memory of her soldiers and sailors, and for the purpose of having within her borders a tangible and lasting admonition to future generations to preserve the Union of these states, and ever defend our flag, the emblem of liberty and symbol of American institutions, and, Whereas, Said monument in its incipient and original favor with the people was, no doubt, designed as an expression of gratitude to the Iowa soldiers and sailors, one and all alike, without semblence of favoritism, or regard to rank for the patriotic offering ofliyes upon the altar of our country, therefore be it Resolved—First, That wo most heartily endorse the sentiment favoring the erection of an Iowa soldiers' and sailors' mon* umont for its true and sacred mission. Second—That we declare it to be a mistaken course by the monument commission to place the image or medallion portrait of a living man upon the monument, or append thereto any figure other than such as are typical, for the followingreasons: First, That special recognition exalts one soldier above another of equal or or more deserving record. Second, That influence is improperly serving a favored few who are to be specially honored, Third—That a monument should, instead of pointing to the living for their aggrandizement and glory, point to the deed, who are to be remembered and cannot longer on earth enjoy the comfort of family and friends and blessings of victory. Fourth—That the course pursued is causing great dissatisfaction and abating the interest of the Iowa soldier and sailor in the completion and happy dedication of the monument. Fifth—That while it is well to honor meij who by gallant service o,r signal deeds of heroism peculiarly honored themselves, It is an abridgment of the honor of others to use the monument fpr the glory of a favowed few. Sjxth—The unfltuess of dedicating the monument to living mon with their me. daUJpas thereon, is a vaiu glory, and can only invoke cold respect from men, as they behold the perversion. p( the splepjn, sacred, hallowed scegery and serenity wbjch SU|rnnn4 such anymjamput with mockery. *»* A VAIN APPEAL. The President's appeal to' congress for relief from the financial embarrassments pressing upon the government met a prompt and patriotic response in the house of representatives, which last week passed two bills, one to increase the revenues so as to prevent further deficits, and another providing for the borrowing of money to protect the gold reserve and meet immediate current expenses. The revenue bill passed by the bouse provides for the levying of a tariff on wool and woolen goods and lumber equal to 60 per cent, of that named by theMcKinley bill.and a horizontal increase of existing duties on other articles. This bill is claimed to mean an increase of $40,000,000 in the tariff revenues per annum should it ever become a law. The bond bill passed provided for the sale of 3 per cent, bonds to run fifteen years, to protect the gold reserve, and another issue of certificates of indebtedness to meet current expenses, the latter to run not larger than 5 years and to bear not to exceed 3 per .cent, interest. The bill specifically provides against the permanent retirement of greenbacks and calls for coin instead of gold bonds, and so in those respects negatives Cleveland's financ i a 1 schemes. There is good reason to believe that these two measures would successfully meet and cure the evils of the present situation, if tkey could become laws, but it is not supposed thai eij,er will pass the senate, which has a free silver majority, and which will insist on a free silver amendment, which the house will not accept. The senate is expected to talk for several months on these bills, which the house has matured and passed in a week, and then to pass them, if it passes them at all, so amended 'that no sane body will dare to indorse them. We have at the present time a senate which is about as responsive to American public sentiment as shown in the recent elections, as the sultan of Turkey is to the demands of Christian civilization. THE FARMER BOY'S CHANCE The Bright and Healthy Brain of the Iowa Farmer Boy and the 4 Year's Course at The republicans have re-organized the United States senate, their caucus corn- mittiees having been installed, Monday, by a vote of 30 to 88, The victory is o( problematical advantage, shifting as it does upon the republicans a nominal re sponstbUt'ty while they are without the power to control legislation. The senate at the present time is incapacitated by its mixed composition for any service to the country. It has too many kinds of politics, Iowa Agricultural College Make a Happy Combination and Mean Success- Graduates are in Quick Demand. A. A. Parks, of the Fort Dodge Po*t,has been honored by promotion to the business management of tho Cosmopoliton magazine. The Post says: A. A, Parks, who for the past two years has acted as editor of the Fort Podge Post, has resign' ed to accept the position of business manager of the Cosmopolitan magazine, published at JTew York OJty. During his con* neotlon with this paper Mr. Parks has demonstrated tola aWJJty as an exception- Perhaps this suggestion from Prof. Jas. Wilson, of 'the Iowa Agricultural college at Ames, may set some Ko's^utli county boy on the right track. Prof. Wilson says: "Every bright young fellow we take through the dairy course is wanted at once. That is not annoying, because we can quickly train others, but every bright man who graduates in the four years agricultural course is picked up so promptly by other colleges, experiment stations and commercial interests that it is difficult to keep sufficient teaching force. It is true we can select from the graduates of the four years agricultural course,.but as soon as they get their sea feet as instructors they are wanted by somebody who will pay more than the college pays, and a beginning has to be made again. The four years course at Ames prepares young men for so many vocations in life that graduates of other colleges are not fitted for by educaton, that.we are often reduced to extremities by the demand for them. In fact the young Iowa farmer trained at home to everything practical is a rare man after he has gone through our laboratories; He is a dairyman, ,both practical and scientific; he is a horticulturist; he is informed regarding the whys and wherefores of "cultivation, rotation, soil, constituents, breeding, feeding, harvesting and the like, with about the same proficiency in mathematics as fjraduatss of other colleges. He is com- parati^ely weak in languages and literature, but nobody coming to employ him ever asks about the latter, He is wanted as a travelling agent for great houses dealing in supplies because he knows more about Iowa products than others, He is wanted to work on agricultural journals, being familiar with the sciences that underlie all topics discussed, He goes back to the farm (if he has one to go back to and if not, he sets out to earn one) sell ing his labor in the dearest market. He will be a farmer some day. These questions are asked by visitors: H Do your students plow?" The answer "Np; they would not come to do ...... but to learn why plowing is done," "J?q they tend corn?" "No; they understand that, but they study the effect of cultivation," "Dothey haul out manure?" "No; but they studj what manure is and what changes take place in it under varying conditions." r 'Po they milk?" "No; but they ;. milk and the changes through which it goes to make butter and cheese under several professors, and when these and kindred subjects are comprehend* eU, the students are rare men, wanted, while graduates of pther courses have few openings," VAN been put down within the reach of all raging from 25 cents to 50 cents for admission. The play for the opening night, Monday Jan. 6, will be "In- goinar" the Barbarian. SYKOPSIS O1T THE PIECE. In the story of "Ingomar" Miss Van lourtland as Parthenia, the gentle bora Greek maid, is a most beautiful haracter. She is pure as a lilly, gentle as a dove, and yet capable of the strongest passons; her love for her aged parents makes her ready for the greatest-acts of self-sacrifice; her love for Ingomar gives her a power over the fle'rce barbarian, which none of his enemies ever could yield. She tamed his fierce rnpods, made him forget and forsake his wild brigand life and converted him into a peaceable Greek citizen. Ingomar is in many respects a noble characterer. His was a nature capable of great things, but early environments has prevented his realizing all that was good in him, that could only be drawn out by love. To speak of Miss Van Courtland's representation of Parthenis in terms of other than the strength would be to leave undone a duty. She is most natural, deeming herself in spite of all her natural grades, but the child of Myron the Armorer; her mien is signified when dignity is needed to protect her fair womanhood from the minor Polydor, and the wild followers of Ingomar. Her voice is flexible; now it breaks forth in fierce declaration, and now it melts in sweetest tenderness. Her intonation is clear and resonant, and her acting entirely free from stageyness. The cbaracler of "Ingomar" is ably sustained by Mr. W. J. Butler, whose THESE PREMIUMS ARE GOOD ally brilliant young newspaper man and bis numerous friends will regret his departure. I., kaFayefcte Parks, brother of the former editor, has assumed the editor' ship 'of the Post. AU pf Next Week The Qper§ booked, Wa Yap physique suits the As the barbarian part admirably, he is bold and masterful, ruling his band with a strong hand; when under the influence of love he becomes pliable as a willow, and readily obeys every behest of the Greek maiden, It is a pleasure to anonuce the engagement of Ida Yan Courtland and the excellent company aji the opera house for one week, and Saturday matinee, commencing Monday, Jan, 6, All kinds of fancy baking for parties at City Bakery.

The Republican and the Farmer's Labor Saving Account Book for $ Liberal Clubbing Offers. GOOD WHILE THEY LAST. The REPUBLICAN* like most other enterprising county, newspapers, has frequently offered premiums to subscribers paying in advance, and to a limited extent it will do so this year, but only so long as our present supply holds out. This, premium is especially valuable to farmers, and the offer below is intended . for their benefit. It is the FARMER'S LABOR-SAVING ACCOUNT BOOK. The account book is gotten up with a view to the especial n%eds of farmers and is a very desirable . thing to have in the house. It is of legal cap size, with stiff manilla covers; has space for miscellaneous memoranda and has ruled monthly expense account sheets, showing articles purchased and articles sold during the year. It contains a great fund of information val uable to the farmer and handy for reference, including tables, estimates, computations, blank forms, facts for builders, recipes, etc. It is a 26 cent book and no farmer can afford to be without it'for four times that. It can be bad by farmers who pay in advance for 1896, Anyone wishing to see one of these books can do so\at this office, CLUJBBINQ OFFERS, REPUBLICAN AND REGISTER FOR $1.85, Danson & Butler, LAW, LOANS AND LANDS.
